Like little stars.
It’s often hard to understand what Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert is saying, much less why he’s saying it. But the Tea Party darling and former judge (scary, right?) was even more bizarre, inscrutable and entertaining than usual on Wednesday when he decided to use some of his time on the House floor to read a “Saturday Night Live” script from a bit that aired more than five years ago.
After a long pre-ramble — a word we just made up to describe a preamble that doesn’t go anywhere and in retrospect seems unnecessary — which was mainly about how former GOP vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin predicted Russian President Vladimir Putin’s incursion into Ukraine, a claim Palin has made a few times herself, Gohmert eventually got to the point. And the point was, basically, to deliver the least-funny rendition of an “SNL” skit imaginable.
If you like the idea of watching an angry, reactionary, middle-aged Southern white guy pretend to be Tina Fey pretending to be Sarah Palin, then check out the clip below from MSNBC (Gohmert starts talking about the skit around the 3:50 mark):
Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
